of people say the crosses represent the christian religion. the supreme court decision says this one in particular reflects the crosses of u.s. fallen soldiers you see in cemeteries where soldiers lost their lives in the name of freedom. it is not necessary about religion. thank you very much. >> this just in. a statement coming in now. associated press is reporting joe kelly. there are now two women involved in different ways in this scandal that surrounds general gave individual petraeus w -- d petraeus who left the cia on friday. jill kelly who received threatening e-mails from the computer of a former girlfriend paula broadwell with whom petraeus was having an affair allegedly. jill kelly issued a statement to the associated press acknowledging her friendship with the former cia director and asking now for privacy. as we have been reporting tonight the family says she p and petraeus had an affair but she received threatening e-mails from broadwell or from broadwell's computer. she contacted them. more than five years they have. >> to the right is the general's wife holly. that is
religion in the u.s. the national religion in the u.s. is the military and the journalists are the high priests. >> what does this mean for afghanistan and the cia? you have this military general becoming the head of the cia, now david petraeus -- the have whatever will happen to john allen. what does this mean? >> i'm not sure means anything as far as the policy national security state. i think it will simply be replaced. i'm not sure that general allen is going anywhere. certainly, david petraeus was an important person in the sense he was a revered, almost as a religious figure, that he shielded the cia and other military institutions from any kind of criticism i think -- >> and has been pushing for an expansion of the drone war. >> and president obama, the commander in chief, his boss, is very much on board with the expansion not just of the drone war, the conversion of the cia and to even more of a paramilitary organization than it has ever been before. i think that will continue fully apace on whoever steps and will be fully on board with that. >> can you say a little bit about th
religion, or is it really deep and historical sense of oneness? my own little theory is that it became until recently, people like strom thurmond, the fact that so many white men, historically in this country pulled themselves that they were not the product of race and so this invisibility of the product of race is not the product of the women who must've really wanted them. otherwise it is -- it is very clear that some parts operate at a distance. >> i would also, speaking to your question about whether this is about action or reaction, and of course, i think it is all part of this so that everything is constant in action and reaction -- one thing i want to point to, i think when we talk about these kind of race comments on the contraceptive comments are so outrageous over the past year, we think of it as a republican blood of stupidity. in fact, one of the interesting things is that it was prompted by unusual behavior on the part of the democrats. the democrats, while being the party of women, and about the time -- as soon as they started counting the gender gap, which really wasn't
. i do not think that is religion specific. i think it is across the board. his relationship with israel, the muslim world. host: this is a financial times editorial today. general petraeus has been the mastermind behind using drugs to go after al qaeda in the horn of africa. but has been the world reaction to this kind of military strategy? guest: it's a controversial strategy, no question. the administration has doubled down on the use of drones. there are significantly more than a river were then in the bush administration. there is clearly rationale for some of this, but there are some issues about executive privilege in making some of these decisions. i do not think petraeus is the only person who has been a mastermind. there are many who feel strongly about this. i do not see policy changing, but there's certainly a feeling in pakistan, the horn of africa, and other places. in yemen, it was the morning after obama's victory that there was a draw on strike in yemen -- drone strike. you can call them a surgical strikes, but there are certainly casualties. it's a conversat
that might be similar to other religions demand but it is also an entire political system. and here is where it runs afoul of modern human rights concepts like our bill of rights, the universal declaration of human rights. it includes a timeless war doctrine. it also rejects basic human freedoms like freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and it imposes discriminatory regulation, legal regulations against non muslim minorities and women. also includes dehumanizing punishments are well we would consider dehumanizing punishments like flashing for our consumption, stoning to death for adultery, and mutilating punishment. lou: and there is no way in which american culture can accommodate each area within a multi-cultural society, part of which would be the muslims? >> absolutely not, certainly not the overt liberty crushing dehumanizing aspects of sharia. unfortunately, it is an integrated whole. it is proven historically very, very difficult for muslims dead desacraled sherry, sacralize it and to eliminate the political liberty crushing aspects from the simple religious ritual. lou: so the a
their religion trumps their commitment to journalism. that's atrocious and beneath rupert murdoch. >>> it is now clear luke russert has some of his brass. when nancy pelosi said she was staying on as minority leader, he asked a question related to her age and she didn't like it one bit. >> some of your colleagues privately say your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and will be hurt the party long term. what's your response. >> you always ask that question, except to mitch mcconnell. i think what you will see, and let's for a moment honor it as a legitimate question, although it's quite offensive. >> i'm sorry, congresswoman, it was a legitimate question and russert asked it respectfully. >>> speaking of questions, president obama was wrapping up his white house news conference when bloomberg tried to send it into overtime. >> thank you very much. >> most of the conversations -- >> that was a great question, but it would be a horrible precedent for me to answer your question just because you yelled it out. so thank you very much, guys. >> nice try, but obama
religion. >> hmm. general james "spider" marks joining us this morning. thank you, sir. we certainly appreciate it. nice to see you. >> sure. >> still ahead this morning on "starting point" when veterans return home they often face an uphill battle trying to return to civilian life but there's a method of meditation that could help them. we're dealing with post traumatic stress. russell simmons is our guest up next. ♪ 100% greek. 100% mmm... ♪ oh wow, that is mmm... ♪ in fact it's so mmm you might not believe it's a hundred calories. well ok then, new yoplait greek 100. it is so good. ♪ it is so good. alriwoah! did you get that? and...flip! yep, look at this. it takes like 20 pictures at a time. i never miss anything. isn't that awesome? uh that's really cool. you should upload these. i know, right? that is really amazing. the pictures are so clear. kevin's a handsome devil that phone does everything! search dog tricks. okay, see if we can teach him something cool. look at how lazy kevin is. kevin, get it together dude cmon, kevin take 20 pictures with burst shot on the galax
a lot about religion but one milestone was overlooked. hawaii made tulsi gabbard the first hindu congresswoman. representative elect gabbard joins us now from new york. good morning. >> thank you for having me this morning. >> we're excited to have you here. how does it feel? >> thank you so much. i'm excited and ready to get to work. >> you have a lot of work to do, too, let me tell you. >> yes. >> but let's talk about your religion because, you know, a lot of us think that it's pretty cool to have a hindu in congress for the first time. do you feel like you're something unusual? >> you know, i'm actually very proud and i'm proud especially of the people of hawaii and to come from a place as special as hawaii because not only did they make the choice to elect me, the first hindu member of congress, but also elected the first buddhist member of the u.s. senate. and in hawaii, hindu and buddhists are a majority in faith within the community but it shows the respect, diversity, and love and aloha that people have in hawaii to allow for something like this to happen. >> normally we
with our long history and pluralization of american religions. >> so tell us a bit about that history. why is it okay to joke about jesus but not other religious figures? >> the sacred is much more in contest here in part because of our legacy of religious freedom, but in part because we've had a long history of conflict over sacred imagery and words, often violent conflict. and in more recent years because of the rise of secularism, because of the rise of the culture of mockery in part, as well. it's just become more acceptable. >> is it because more and more of us are agnostic? i mean, why is it? is it -- do we still believe in jesus yet we joke about him? is it the other way around? >> well, it's funny if you read the comments on our cnn belief blog, you'll see that people are engaging in arguments with each other saying our argument has but humor is the way we deal with these kinds of conflicts. and as we say in the piece, in part, it's our way we don't kill each other. >> well, interestingly, i was talking to one of the employees here at cnn, kathy, and she said her minister, she belo
they really want the doctors they go to not to believe in science? it's one thing to believe in your religion, which i do, but to go transfer some biblical scripture into science and try to use it for a different purpose than it was meant. it's meant for spiritual and moral leadership, not meant for scientific inquiry. for them to keep doing this like he does and claiming he's going to lead the country into the 21st -- through the 21st century? i think that's kind of not smart or dopey thinking. what downey? how can you claim to be a reformist and talk about creationism. >> i'm not sure that bobby jindal is talking about creationism very much in the stants he made to politico. >> he hasn't stopped. >> he hasn't stopped yet. again, this is very early days. i'm not trying to make excuses for him. i think -- in any way. i'm pro-science, i think we should be proud if you're going to be a credible reformer in the republican party you will need to embrace the reality of things like climate change. there's no question about that. but, you know, i think there is going to be -- this is where some of t
treat the vulnerable. but i think this partisan manipulation of religion, i'm an evangelical and what's clear now is that evangelical will no longer mean white evangelical and franklin graham has to get used to that. evangelical is hispanic, african-americans, asians, didn't vote the way he did this time by a large majority. so we brought other issues into the election like how we treat the poor, how we treat the environment, how we welcome strangers. you in evangelicals last week writing the president last week saying how we treat the immigrant undocumented people is for us a biblical issue. we're going to write them again this week, the president and say who are serving the poor at christmastime and thanksgiving we're involved in that. those of us who are doing that are going to say to our members of congress don't make decisions that make the poor poorer and make our work harder. so you might say we're doing turkey baskets for the poor than baskets of letters to our some of our turkeys who represent us in congress. >> the moral majority for so longing had sway with partisan sway. d
tag team of globetrotting researchers as serious about big foot as the pope is about religion. big foot, sasquatch, yeti, it is often a punchline. people are incredibly skeptical. >> you get punched if you say that stuff around me. >> reporter: like we said, they are really into big foot. never mind the fact that the only thing any one knows for sure about the legendary beast it has been wildly successful at filling tabloids. subject of terrible b movies and generally serving as an all-around punchline. matt moneymaker, rene holland and james bobo fey are real life big foot hunters. with every bit of technology, night vision gear and sensors they can get their hand on, the group travels the world investigating big foot sightings. why are people fascinated by big foot? >> well, first it is more than one, it's not big foot, it's big foots. a misconception we are looking around for this one thing. >> reporter: adventures and investigations make up two and soon to be three seasons of the animal planet show "finding big foot." why is there no good photo or video? the famous photo and fi
's religion, that they look into the psychological record, that they looking to his medical records, makes the case for punishing the student or kicking them out. hayden was a little bit upset that he got such a bad dressing down by the president, and so in protest he made a collage. he made a collage that he put on facebook that included asthma puffer, no blood for oil, crushed earth, you know, all the consequences he thought would happen with this parking garage. and he calls it is safe, the environmentalist group that he thought was falling down on the job, zachariah memorial parking garage. the joke being that this president thought this is going to be part of his legacy, his memorial. the university, as i said, zachariah was already looking for an excuse to kk out of school. he slips a note on the university slips a note under hayden's door claiming that this proved, the collage attached to them this proved that hayden was not a clear and present danger to campus. the collage stapled to the note, and if anybody really wants to take us who say they thought the student was a threat, gai
a better job of getting across that america is freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise and freedom is special and rare. shannon: the timing of general david petraeus resigning from the cia is raising questions as its comes just before he was to testify on libya. the stunning revelation. war hero general david petraeus forced from his cia post over his affair with his biographer. but the exit comes days after he was set to testify over the response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. national security correspondents jennifer griffin has been breaking news all along on this. hello, jennifer. >> reporter: serious questions are being raised whether broadwell had access to the benghazi because of her relationship with david petraeus. and whether she may have revealed some of that information during a speech on november 6. bradwell said this. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia annex had taken a couple of libyan mely shah members prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get the prisoners back. so the'
a fighter squadron where a previous commander we had i think three or four folks of the mormon religion in the squadron. they didn't drink. they would come to happy hour on fridays at the bar when we used to do that kind of thing. and they'd participate and drink a soda and didn't drink. and he held this against them for some reason. he got fired and i became the leader. not for that but for some other stupid stuff. let me tell you how easy it was to take over that squadron. all you have to do is embrace everybody. and if you don't in a squadron, if you exclude three people not only do they not people part of the team but you're not going to get the job done. our military is not going to get any bigger by the way through most of your careers. we need everybody in a major way. so i think it's also good by the way that you're in the military or going to join the military for those at the service academies and v.m.i. and probably some others in this room. you're joining an organization that has no tolerance for discrimination. and it's been going on for a long time. it's taken a long time
for help. our religion correspondent, lauren green, is live with this story. >> hi, jenna. as you said,ouses of worship are supposed to be sanctuaries for the broken hearted, but countless are in great need of healing themselves. the repair work as begun at all saints in bayhead, new jersey, but the road ahead is wrong. the historic structure was built in the late 1800s and designed by boat builders but was never meant to withstand the surge from dirty bay water that sandy brought. >> if it had been just the ocean water, it would have been a lot cleaner, but because it was the bay water and the ditch, it threw the mud in as well and caused more damage than if it had been just purely clean sea water. >> reporter: now, sandy was an equal opportunity destroyer. at western synagogue in queens, new york, the rabbi surveys the damage. the storm put the entire neighborhood and temple under at least four feet of water. the once-pristine sanctuary now has buckling floors, the holy books are unusable, but because of their religious content they cannot be burned, so they sit covered outdoors awai
